activists return home the u.s. as one state department official put it counts on the ripple effect for any interference doesn't have to be a military invasion or a bombing campaign or you know some kind of special operation on the ground in that country it can also be the training and funding and this political support given to individuals who then promote this for interest and that's one of the newer strategies that the u.s. government has successfully been executing in different countries around the world it doesn't consider subordinate to their agenda and it's a way to do it subtly that it's harder to detect it's harder to denounce it. and it can often be more effective if the u.s. perceives the er knapp and social networking platforms as major tools for spreading democracy and pumps millions of dollars into developing systems to health people in the middle east and china get around internet blocking firewalls but at the same time american companies provide bahrain saudi arabia and kuwait with the technology

to effectively block websites when the us government purports to be used for any democracy it's simply a sham it's a pretense it's a lie the goal of u.s. foreign policy is to put its people in public office and in foreign countries the u.s. military has recently launched an online management program which enables it to generate multiple fake identities on social networks the false personas are designed to contribute to the flow of conversations on facebook twitter and other websites people are using social media for cyber warfare i mean that's what we're going to see more more and more of i think from from whether it's governments or non-state actors they're going to try to find ways to use the internet and social media to gain an advantage in their own battle the recent turmoil in libya suggest orchestration of twitter with fake users only around five percent of libyans have
11:10 am
access to the internet and the number of twitter users there is so small that analysts couldn't even calculate it yet in february this year a surge of libyan twitter accounts appeared reporting in english and virtually all begging for intervention we know that. since the beginning of the war that libya is still going to access to go into that but those people will check this essential fact they take all this information coming here at face value which is the role that this ricky did with newt. trained activists provided with panic partners and other technologies scores of false identities on the air an ad spreading certain ideas the u.s. says it's all about promoting democracy but do they use that clarity in tankers justify direct interference in other countries the mistake of players i'm going to check our reporting for washington are to. you without

11:18 am
are clean to smooth over divisive issues to stress the key point that a stable pakistan is in the interests of all great notion r t islamabad pakistan. you are with r.t. what you child without being able to help is a hardship many parents across russia have to deal with every single day the lack of treatment and funding for kids with illnesses that leaves them with no option but to fend for themselves there's also use of. finding out their parents refuse to give up hope that the government will come through for them before it's too late. there go the same age billie when one country and they have the same debilitating condition the only difference between them is that one was born in the capital and another one lives in a small town and is this zip code lottery it's already defined who of them believe and who will die and leave you want some others ask me if it's all worth it all this expensive treatment and the nerves they told me look he's turned he's unable
11:19 am
to talk and still wears diapers what's the point of spending so much in his treatment but i love him regardless of whether he was diapers or not i just love him the way he is this sort of prussians is pursuing mothers of children with the hunter syndrome all the time but only because these genetic condition is impossible to cure but even more so because treating it is prohibited really expensive so expensive that for many years these children didn't stand a chance of living to middle age that is until. moderates like her forced more score thirty to pay for treatment yet the russian constitution doesn't say that if the treatment is expensive then it shouldn't be provided that if a child was unfortunate to be born in a small town it should be abandoned to allow nature to take its course. yet this is exactly what's happening the two hundred fifty children countries syndrome in russia less than half are receiving lifesaving drugs forty year old volodya is not
11:20 am
one of them the build up of toxins that his body is unable to recycle has left him unable to walk and talk of the last few months he's been rapidly losing his side and hearing politics treatment business related to cost more than eight hundred thousand dollars that's an exorbitant amount it could offer favored dozens of hundreds of people the last complicating conditions but with all this money may not leave to see the next summer this thing of all is that a part. is one of the things to care about god you're not husband left her when he learned of their son's disability local authorities refused to help citing the lack of money but here is thankful for small mercies bodies still alive and that it comes hope i'm happy just a week and see him breathing sometimes he smiles and it's the greatest gift for me
11:21 am
i knew that she didn't is expensive and i know this money could help me other children but he didn't choose his condition and he also deserves to live the russian president recently suggested that the huntress syndrome be added to the list of illnesses treated exclusively at the expense of the federal budget and move many of the medical community say is long over due it is a bit when there are between six thousand and eight thousand trained on a search and the treatment for many of them is to either nonexistent or to expansion of the rarity of the illness definitely shouldn't be a criterion for providing medical assistance these kids and so much pain and then entitle to treatment just like children with food or chicken pox bursting bubbles is something that these mothers have longer to use to when they give birth to their children they all dreamt of their becoming someone raid and it was only after the chilling diagnosis they realized their children bridges that great. artsy moscow. but british coalition government has clashed over how to deal with
11:22 am
the rising immigration in the u.k. leading liberal democrat vince cable has criticized tory prime minister david cameron over a speech in which the coming year cut integration down to tens of thousands cameron said that some immigrants failure to learn english was quote wrecking communities now it comes as member states in the e.u. are locked in a battle over the deluge of north african migrants seeking refuge in europe that's now of course live to london and speak to nigel farage a leader of the u.k. independence party so david cameron has been accused of stirring up extremism by a senior cabinet colleague over some of his immigration plans do you think it's remarkable too strong well look the first thing to say is i'm delighted that the british prime minister has actually stated the obvious which is that if you have huge mass immigration that happens rapidly into an area and if people don't speak the same language then what you get is the ghettoization in cities and towns and
11:23 am
you get a dislocated society and so no i mean full marks to david cameron for at least starting that debate now vince cable is a bit of an old dreamer but idealist and he things all immigration is salut be wonderful and we should never criticize it at all i'm sorry mr cable but your the one that is hopelessly out of touch only four percent of liberal democrat voters think that a net increase of the british population by immigration of a quarter of million people a year makes sense so cable is completely out of touch so that they be cameron he started this debate the trouble is that he can't deliver because he's promising to cut immigration down from hundreds to tens of thousands or he can do that by stopping people coming in in large numbers from out so there are some there are some that say that whatever clamp down on immigration policy whatever it is it won't work because those that are already in the u.k. are increasing the population simply by breeding. well there is some truth in that
11:24 am
there is some truth in that but that but that's not the argument the argument here are the number of new settlers that come into the country every year and because we're part of the european union we have total free movement of peoples within that union now since two thousand and four since poland lithuania latvia and now bulgaria and romania have joined the union they are very much poorer countries most of them learn english as their first foreign language and we've had a huge number of people from those countries some talk you talk about the spillover of people from these countries are coming across the borders now or as part of a big european neighborhood but what role do you think the e.u. should do in resolving what many are calling a crisis is a powerless. the e.u. doesn't know what to do because it's the individual member states that grant citizenship so for example when rumania gives a million passports to moldovans those world opens with the e.u. remaining and passports can go wherever they like mr berlusconi gives lots of
11:25 am
libyans passports once they've got leave passports they can go wherever they like and the argument that we're making here in this country is that the united kingdom is the most overcrowded country in the whole of the european union you would have to travel on the london underground to realise just how overcrowded we've become and the argument that i would put to mr cameron is yes let's have this debate but let's not have the e.u. having open borders and free movement of peoples why don't we in britain decide ourselves how many people come in every you know when you talk about having a debate here and there's a cabinet member accusing the british prime minister of inciting extremism here it would seem that maybe perhaps to some there in france with the recently implemented burqa ban and arrests are already being made with that that france is burke about maybe more inflammatory then simple immigration rhetoric from cameron yeah i mean look i think that vince cable frankly has made a fool of himself with those comments it is
11:26 am
a perfectly respectable and decent thing to talk about immigration numbers goodness me we have an extra three million people have settled in this overcrowded country of ours since nine hundred ninety seven so i would ignore what cable said he's completely out of touch and he isn't doing much good as business secretary anyway i can't see him lasting long within this coalition so so your you're tipping your hat to prime minister cameron here saying that you know it was good for the comments he's made on immigration but you know there seems to be an is growing age of political correctness particularly among politicians to tread very carefully around the issue of immigration otherwise they're being seen as racist. well this is i mean carol actually four years ago cameron accused me and my party of closet racism for talking about the immigration issue i'm pleased to see that politically he's matured and he's now making those same arguments himself the difficulty david cameron has got is he will now have raised expectations within this country but he
11:27 am
has a prime minister is actually not just going to talk the talk but he's going to walk the war he's going to deliver on the point that i'm making is he cannot do that because we're members of the you because we have open borders and because from a the first our social security system will give people from poland the same rights to unemployment benefit that we have all right nigel farage and the pm leader of the u.k. in his party thank you all right now our kareen is here with business. welcome to the business i will go straight to our top story b.p. has confirmed for the first time that together with ross now it has offered casts an arctic opportunities to the russian shareholders in he wants to buy those partners out so we can proceed with the sixteen billion dollars. in january we are these annual general meeting is taking place in london and the process from shareholders and environmentalist now to discuss all this i'm joined by ben creates
11:28 am
a lease sales trader i i g a group cloete thanks for joining the program now my first question is what's the feeling in london is to expect this deal between b.p. and have to go through you know things seem to be change in the last twelve hours tonight twelve hours ago looked critically unlikely to be going ahead i think much was and since then we've seen the extension on the law and for the share sixteen but my that's really brits are life into the story it's the possibility that this will be paid extra cianci can sit at that point you just mentioned. that were to file the possibility of sort of preparing an independent tribunal to promise this extra time. doesn't get the program out the way which is always prepare them on the russian partners in thinking b.p.
11:29 am
have a poorly set a starting price for the company for at seventy billion dollars now does he have thirty five billion to hand over. yet that's a question everyone seems to be wanting to know at the moment it's a difficult one to one support there's no question. the page balance sheet is has a lot less power behind it than it did one year ago oversee all the compensation it had to play with because the mix. you know all spill had to sell off some of their assets dividends were scrapped because palin she is not what it once was is a very fair question and maybe one that people are trying to get ahead of the moment ok thank you ben and i'm afraid that's all we have time for this business. that was. our business update and we have more for you in less than one hour.
